Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter after finding out that they will play National League outfit Sutton United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Sutton sensationally secured a place in the next round on Tuesday night after a 3-1 win in a replay against 10-man AFC Wimbledon, who play two divisions higher.
Former Leeds striker Tom Elliott put Wimbledon ahead, before goals from Roarie Deacon, Maxime Biamou and Dan Fitchett saw Sutton overcome their League One opponents in the final minutes.
Sutton, who will now host Yorkshire giants Leeds on January 29, will be in front of live television cameras with a place in the fifth round at stake.
Leeds fans reacted in comical fashion on Twitter following Sutton’s dramatic win, with many worried that the magic of the FA Cup could strike in the form of a giant killing.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The FA Cup tie is packed into the middle of a busy week for Leeds, as they host Nottingham Forest on January 25 before travelling to Blackburn on February 1.
The tie could see manager Garry Monk hand chances to a few fringe members of his squad including the likes of Marco Silvestri, Alex Mowatt and Marcus Antonsson.
It remains to be seen how important Monk sees the FA Cup, with priority given to Leeds pursuit of achieving Championship promotion to the Premier League.
